    • this is an extreamly sad book. if you love this book then you should watch the movie. they are both really similar.

    • This topic is extremely sad, but I think is important to learn about such awful things that happened so that we can learn from our mistakes. I have no read the book but I want to and I hope you enjoy reading it.

    • I really loved this book when I first read it. While it is very sad, the subject was very interesting and I learned a lot through the eyes of this little boy. I really hope you enjoy the rest of it, but be warned, the ending is very sad.

    • I agree. Individuals don’t have to be together to stay connected. This day in age we can use social media to stay closer than we’ve ever been.

    • Dear Yuliana, I also believe that they might grow apart but one way or another stay in touch.

    • For so many families a war is right at their doorstep. Death, hunger, and poverty looms over the people that are victims of war. I like most other people cannot come to comprehend what is like to live in countries at war. But I can say one thing that it leaves nasty marks that last a lifetime. For a family a war is never truly over even if it is on warfront. They must face the aftermath of death and destruction for a very long time. So I do agree with you on the facts that its not easy to survive through a war.

    • I thought that your post about what children go through during wartime is very insightful, and is something not a lot of people think about. War can impact someone’s life in a very intense way that makes it hard to see past the situation. I had never heard of this book, but it sounds like it is an eye opener.

    • Yuliana, I think you are right.
      I read few books about those war kids too. They have to fight, kill and survive wars which they don’t even know why it is for. Sometimes adults injects drugs to those young kids to make them kill. They still have to face poverty and insecure environment.
      At least in your book there are people who are willing to provide some food; in the stories I read the things were worse.
      I think this is an important issue that needs to be addressed, and I think more people who can protect those kids should care about them. It is important for us to know what kids in the war exactly means.

  • Dear Caroline,
    I am interested in your post because many Americans do not realize what can happen if Donald Trump is elected for president. He is wanting to change many things that should stay how they are. If he
